TIEESHA N. TAYLOR, ESQ.
Tieesha founded the Elderly Care Law Firm of Tieesha N. Taylor, P.A. as a way of addressing a need she saw in the community for compassionate, values-based advocacy and legal services; and as a way to develop a legal practice that was consistent with her own personal values and legal philosophy.
Before founding the Elderly Care Law Firm, Tieesha worked as a project manager for a real estate developer. She was subsequently laid-off on her birthday. She saw that as a blessing in disguise because she had more time to devote to community service. She began volunteering with the Florida Long Term Care Ombudsman Council as an advocate for residents in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and adult family care homes. As an Ombudsman, Tieesha met a wonderful elderly woman whose rights were removed through a guardianship proceeding. Tieesha advocated on her behalf and worked with the woman’s attorney in getting her rights restored. That experience completely changed her life and from that very moment she knew that her purpose in life was to advocate for the elderly and our most vulnerable citizens.
Since founding the Elderly Care Law Firm, Tieesha has had the opportunity to work with individuals and families in a variety of situations. Although the bulk of her practice is advocacy for the elderly, she also works with disabled individuals, veterans, business owners, blended families, the terminally ill, unmarried couples and lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgendered families. It is her experience that each family, no matter how traditional or non-traditional, is truly unique and, once you get to know them, have unique needs.
When she is not practicing law, Tieesha volunteers her time providing educational presentations at senior centers, places of worship and to professional organizations. She enjoys relaxing with her family, friends and two cats (Leo and Sky) and she loves spending as much time as possible outdoors.
Legal Case Manager
Bonni grew up primarily in South Florida and, after having spent 20 years in New England, decided to come back to raise her family. Personable and energetic, she makes everyone she meets feel like an old friend.
With over 14 years in the medical field working from doctor’s offices to hospitals to laboratories and as the daughter of a Veteran, she brings a varied background to the law firm. Her first job in a law firm and subsequent jobs that had her working with the elderly and aging offers her insight which allows her to help those in need. As legal case manager, helping clients get their questions answered, their needs met, and offering an empathetic ear is one of her many duties. Networking within the community offers the opportunity to reach out to the many who don’t realize that they are entitled to their benefits.
When she isn’t working, Bonni is busy with her four children, their activities, and her 4 dogs plus the 1-2 extras that she fosters through her work with animal rescue. She feeds abandoned dogs out in the pockets of Miami-Dade County, cooks, bakes, reads, knits, and when she has the time, scrapbooks.
